Events and Campaigns

The Smart Commute program regularly offers campaigns and events to promote sustainable travel.

Winter Commute Month - February 2023!

During February, take advantage of your work commute by exploring walking, rolling, sharing a ride or taking transit! If you're working from home, telework reduces driving trips too! Be sure to log your sustainable travel and see how far you can go!

Warm up your commute in 2023 by taking up the Winter Commute contest in February! Share your work commute story in emojis on Twitter and/or log a sustainable commute trip (including telework) on the SmartCommute.ca app for a chance to win a prize!

Making a commute? Here’s some ideas to get started:

• Keep the car at home and hop on public transit to work

• In nice weather, take a walk or quick bike ride to warm up quicker than you think!

• Try carpooling by finding a ridematch on the SmartCommute.ca app

• Trip-chaining saves time by combining work commute trips with errands and activities

Working from home? Time to increase well-being and get active:

• Try transit and log a trip to a local business

• Call a friend or colleague to join a walk, bike or transit trip

• Join up and encourage your work colleagues to sign-up for a future carpool on the smartcommute.ca app!
